The new Libreoffice 4.4 is advertised as being all pretty pretty.

http://www.libreoffice.org/discover/screenshots/
http://blog.documentfoundation.org/2015/01/29/libreoffice-4-4-the-most-beautiful-libreoffice-ever/

So I unmasked 4.4 and it looks identical to 4.3, quite ugly. How do I make it look all nice?

use flags:
Code:
[ebuild     U *] app-office/libreoffice-4.4.0.3::gentoo [4.3.5.2::gentoo] USE="branding cups dbus gtk java kde mysql (-aqua) -bluetooth -coinmp -collada -debug -eds (-firebird) -gltf -gnome -gstreamer -gtk3 -jemalloc -odk -postgres -telepathy {-test} -vlc (-opengl%*)" LIBREOFFICE_EXTENSIONS="-nlpsolver -scripting-beanshell -scripting-javascript -wiki-publisher" PYTHON_SINGLE_TARGET="python2_7 -python3_3 -python3_4" PYTHON_TARGETS="python2_7 python3_3 -python3_4" 1,832 KiB

What exactly looks ugly to you?

- If you have an existing `~/.config/libreoffice/4` dir, those settings might prevent LibreOffice from picking the new 'pretty' default.
- You can change the icon theme in LibreOffice preferences.
- Your mileage may vary depending on your desktop environment of choice

If you live in the world outside the big Desktops then you might want to set the OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP and possibly the SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN variables to control how the interface looks like.

Note that you might need to enable a couple use flags for proper gtk+ or qt support in Libreoffice.

Tried the first thing and renamed the "4" folder and that did it. Looks MUCH better now thanks. Also I'm using KDE.
